The Lucid Friend

"Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind; " Edna St, Vincent Millay
I cascade with mystique to dark -a b y s s. Frames of my life fade, as my ashes -d i s s o l v e. At the end of this -t u n n e l- awaits a -l u c i d- friend in hood, all pain vanishes at the -s u m m i t; on mama's lap i doze to -a f t e r l i f e.

Wonderful musings on the path to the afterlife, Aditi. I love the mother's lap as a symbol of comfort and peace, and (my interpretation...) new birth into the next life. Just lovely in all aspects. Good luck in the contest, and I hope you write more etherees! God bless you ~ John

I choose to believe that the peace after death will be as beautiful as mother's lap when I start my journey into the next life. Thank you for the wonderful insight from your interpretation into my words. Always a source of inspiration and knowledge dear friend. I will try to write more. :)

Wow! This is a wonderful write! Love the quote too! All end up in the grave. My mom’s lap used to be solace for those unspoken childhood thoughts.
